Girl Scouts Take Great Wolf Lodge

I'm still recovering from chaperoning Drew's Girl Scout Juniors trip on their trip to Great Wolf Lodge last weekend, but we had a blast! We packed so much stuff into just about 24 hours!

We left Saturday morning about 10:00 AM and got there at 1:00 PM with a quick lunch stop. We got checked in and immediately started doing activities. There was so much for the kids to do, and we got them a Wolf Pass and used our time wisely to do all the activities!

Saturday afternoon/evening the girls: went mining, swam at the indoor water park, went to Build-a-Bear, had pizza for dinner, had ice cream AND candy, and had a dance party!

A view of the girls mining for gems {wearing their wolf ears of course}!

Chaperones can have fun too!

The water park was really neat! It had a lot to do - numerous rides for a variety of scary levels, a lazy river, and a wave pool. The outside area was closed, but it was chilly this weekend, so I'm not sure we would have gone out there either way.

Ice cream after dinner - Drew doesn't know how to be serious. {grin}

I wonder where she ge...oh.

More sillies

Being Juniors, the girls were old enough to not have chaperones in their room, so they got a suite with 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms and a living room. We sent them off to bed with strict instructions to not be too loud. None of the girls had any electronics, so their options were limited for how to spend their time. The moms were across the hall {4 moms, 2 beds...yippee}, and we didn't hear a peep out of them until breakfast the next morning!

Sunday activities: MagiQuest game, Ropes Course, more time at the water park! We got changed and left about 2:30 and were back in Georgetown by 5:30.

All the girls getting ready for the Ropes Course!

Drew was so scared - at one point she started crying.
I was so proud of her for conquering her fear and trying something she was afraid of.

The world's slowest zipline {grin}

More pool time was a big hit with everyone!

We came home exhausted but had an amazing time. Girl Scouts is such an awesome organization, and I'm glad both girls are involved. I hope they will stay in for years to come - there are so many neat things you can do with your troop.
